In this article, we are going to explain to you how to avoid the domain name scams online and how to buy a domain name that is available and reliable.
In order to avoid domain name scams online you should know how to identify them:
Alternate Domain Name
This is probably one of the most popular scams on the internet. It includes a company phoning you saying that someone is trying to purchase an alternative version of your current domain name. They will offer you to register the alternative domain at a price which is significantly higher than the usual price for registering a domain in order to secure the name. The company will give you a short time period to decide. Our advice is to refuse the registration. If you think that domain name is important to you, use a reliable domain name registration service.
Another popular scam. It includes a domain renewal invoice being sent to you. These invoices warn you to renew your domain with them or you are risking to lose your current domain name. If you receive such invoice, you need to check if it is coming from your current domain registrar. If the invoice is sent from an unknown company, you should ignore the message.
Domain Name Search Engine Registration
This scam includes an email written so that it sounds like it is related to your domain expiry or domain renewal. But, if you read the email carefully you will notice that they refer to domain name search engine registration and not your domain name registration. The email includes specific phrases that will pressure you to take an action such as expiry date, cancellation of this offer, failure to complete your registration, and etc. All you need to do is find a reliable company to help you with your SEO or Search Engine Optimization if this is an area you are interested in. Also, make sure to ignore the email and don’t do anything.
